Brazilian striker Bobo returned to the A-League for Sydney FC, but couldn’t find a way past Brisbane Roar in Saturday’s entertaining 0-0 draw

«

Rhyan Grant also hit the crossbar twice for Steve Corica’s team, which dominated the action after the triple substitution of Luke Brattan, Alex Baumjohann and Bobo on the hour, but did not benefit from several good chances in the second half

Brisbane also had an opportunity to score when Dylan Wenzel-Halls ran low and Sydney goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne was forced to use on other occasions, but the visitors were kept goalless for the third consecutive year

Sydney was largely in control of the first half when attackers on both sides were given little freedom. Calem Nieuwenhof shot over the bar after the ball broke on the edge of the box against the youngster, while Kosta Barbarouses – fresh from his doubles against Wellington Phoenix last time – an early shot shot over goal

Milos Ninkovic forced Jamie Young to a rescue on his left as Steve Corica’s men searched for a route through a well-drilled rear guard in Brisbane

But Brisbane had the target as well Rahmat Akbari’s deflected attempt had brought Sydney goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne to his knees, Dylan Wenzel-Halls headed Corey Brown’s cross wide and Jay O’Shea failed to volley an ambitious shot at that Steer gate

After an irritable opening, the match broke in the second half on Macaulay Gillesphey forced a good save from Redmayne from a distance, while Patrick Wood at the other end held Young on the near post after the Sydney youngster tore off the right flank

Dylan Wenzel-Halls hit the side netting after Ninkovic coughed the ball on the edge of the Sydney penalty area before Young parried a stellar save to deny Kosta Barbarouses and choked the Kiwi’s efforts after Anthony Caceres stifled him after one Walzerlauf had found hits in the penalty area

Barbarouses beat Corey Brown twice in three minutes, and on both occasions Grant hit the frame of the goal.First, Grant hit the crossbar after Barbarouse’s cut ricocheted off in his way before shooting the ball at the left post, when Barbarouses drove into the area

The save came when Young, with feline reflexes, reached out his left foot to knock off Bobo’s header after Baumjohann found the Brazilian in the box

Wenzel-Halls fired a strong attempt into the side net, and Alex Wilkinson saved the day for Sydney when Jack Hingert appeared ready to pull the trigger from close range as both sides regretted missed opportunities
